  • These towers are the ancestors of our modern air conditioning systems without the disadvantages of the latter. They deserve to be visited and their functioning correctly explained.

  • The entire old town is one big Museum. It looks as though at any time from the corner may pop out Aladdin or Prince of Persia. Although increasingly popping up motorcycles. Wander through the maze can be many hours. An incredible place!
